16 Easy Songs for Drill & Banjo -  Thief

one day i’m gonna catch that thief
he ran out of luck when he ran
into me
i tell you that fella gonna come
to grief
when i catch that thief

he got balls, he got some nerve
he gonna get all he deserves
he’s quick as a fox, too quick for me
how’m i gonna catch that thief
ooh ooh ooh ooh
i’m gonna catch that thief
ooh ooh ooh ooh
i’m gonna catch that thief

he stole my spade and he stole my hoe
i’m gonna catch that thief
sold them both to my neighbor joe
i’m gonna catch that thief
ten dollars old Joe paid
i’m gonna catch that thief
for my damn hoe and my damn spade
i’m gonna catch that thief

he’s pickin’ mirlitons off my vine
i’m gonna catch that thief
i say “fella them mirlitons
are mine”
i’m gonna catch that thief
“you think money it grows on trees”
i’m gonna catch that thief
“just remember them trees belong
to me”
i’m gonna catch that thief

his name is jack but they call him slim
i’m gonna catch that thief
you don’t want hear the names i called him
i’m gonna catch that thief
when he borrowed my bicycle and bent the rim
i’m gonna catch that thief
then brought it back and acted like i owed him
i’m gonna catch that thief
